Seven-Day Magic (Tales of Magic #7) by Edward Eager


A seven-day book of magic proves to be fractious for five children, who must learn the book’s rules and tame its magic ( 


I loved Seven Day Magic so much more than the previous few books! It was a bit different, magical, and magicmore entertaining the some of the other books in the series.


Five children come across a very special book at a library and when they begin to read it they find out that it is about them and everything they had just done. The rest of the book was blank and up to them to fill up! Each child gets his own wish upon the book and the first one ended up being the most interesting. I mean a wish that involves dragons has to be exciting!  There was also a point in the book when these children visit the little girl who finds the coin at the end of Half Magic, which brought the books together really well. I also thought that having a rule of the book be that the wish has to involve a book was great! A wish that doesn’t may not end up so well. Who wouldn’t want to be in one of their favorite books!?


The characters weren’t my favorite, but in this book it was the story that made it for me. Five children become a lot to keep track of in such a short novel and they just weren’t as well developed as the characters in the previous two books. By the time I was just getting to know them, the book was over 😦 . I just wish I could have the best of both worlds.

Overall Thoughts

It was a great book and I really enjoyed it. I can’t believe this was the last of this series because a sequel to this one would have been fun! I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the series or just loves fantasy. All children will enjoy it too!

My rating: 4.5/5 stars!

One thought on “Seven-Day Magic (Tales of Magic #7) by Edward Eager

  1. Based on your review this sounds like a really fun and relaxing read. I, too, like the idea of a limited wish. It makes the story more dynamic than just saying “Oh I want puppy, or million dollars, or more wishs.” Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
